'Movie Masterclass' series was based on a format that I devised as Head of Direction at UK's National Film & Television School. Initially it was called 'Steenbeck Analysis' because the film was put on a Steenbeck editing machine. In an 8-hour day we would scrutinise some 20 minutes of the film - it was a living entity, the more we examined it, the more it revealed. It was an exhilarating experience. Students couldn't have enough of it. The analysis of Kurosawa's SEVEN SAMURAI was the students' favourite.
Kurosawa Productions later bought the programme and it was aired on NHK TV.
